North Carolina’s agriculture and agribusiness industry is our state’s greatest economic engine.
With an $87 billion annual contribution to our state’s economy, agribusinesses help drive more than their share of North Carolina’s economic success even as they provide communities across our nation with essentials for life.
At the same time, our agriculture industry has been subject to more than its share of challenges, through no fault of its own. An unpredictable trade environment, uncertain talent pipelines, attacks from out-of-state personal injury attorneys, and an unprecedented string of devastating storms have all taken their toll.
At the NC Chamber, we know how important our farms and agribusinesses are to the overall success of our state. If we hope to continue that success, we have to support these vital sectors. That’s why we have made it a top priority to help develop and advocate for policies that allow our state’s farmers and agribusinesses to not only survive, but to thrive in the years and decades ahead.
